All for One and One for All

Unfortunate doesn't begin to describe Shalit's capture. Giving the French and Egyptians the chance to secure Shalit's unconditional release through negotiations (assuming they didn't have information that Shalit had been killed or was in danger of being killed), was a prudent move, which ended in failure.

Now, negotiations having failed, Israel is taking action.

It sends shivers down my spine when I see the pictures of the IDF arrayed to enter Gaza. Negotiations for his unconditional release having failed, hundreds, if not thousands of soldiers are streaming into Gaza to find him. All for one and one for all may be the wrong army, it may be cliche, but it sure describes what's happening now.
